Faculty and Staff Federation of CCP

Since 1970, the Faculty and Staff Federation of Community College of Philadelphia (FSFCCP) has helped to make CCP a good place to work.  Thanks to the steady participation of its members in union activities, FSFCCP has been able to secure and defend some of the best community college employee contracts in the country.  Our members are divided into three bargaining units: Full-Time Faculty; Classified Employees; and Adjunct and Visiting Lecturer Faculty.  We are proud of our history of working together for three contracts.  We are affiliated with the American Federation of Teachers, AFT-Pennsylvania, and the AFL-CIO.

FSFCCP Endorses Larry Krasner for District Attorney

On May 2nd, The Representative Council of the Faculty and Staff Federation of Community College of Philadelphia, AFT local 2026 that represents over 1300 employees, unanimously voted to endorse Larry Krasner for District Attorney of Philadelphia because of his long-standing commitment to progressive reform of Philadelphia’s criminal justice system, and because Krasner’s demonstrated commitment to civil rights and equality aligns with CCP’s mission to provide affordable and quality educational options for all who may benefit.

The Philadelphia District Attorney’s race is a significant moment in the ongoing fight for social and economic justice in Philadelphia. One of the most effective approaches to crime reduction and decreased recidivism is access to education before, during and after incarceration. Through our general enrollment, targeted programs, and numerous other community partnerships, CCP works with many returning citizens who are attempting to turn their lives around, and their families. As the only open-admissions higher education institution in Philadelphia and the most affordable, CCP serves some of the poorest students in the city, many of whom—because crime disproportionately impacts the poor and people of color—are negatively impacted by the kinds of policies and approaches that Krasner seeks to reform. This endorsement is a recognition of that interconnection. We listen to our students’ experiences with discrimination in Sociology discussions, we read English 101 essays on mass incarceration, and at least one of us has helped a Black mother write a research paper on how to protect her son.

The Faculty and Staff Federation of Community College of Philadelphia proudly supports the candidate with the experience and passion necessary to best serve all Philadelphians: Larry Krasner.
